Sustainability

STRATEGY

By positioning your company “sustainably” you gain the upper hand when competing for new customers and new specialized employees and executives (Employer Branding). This is important not only for medium-sized companies. 

We know how to integrate the idea of corporate responsibility into a consistent sustainability strategy. 

We moderate your internal workshops and processes. 

We help you to define priorities.

Together with you we develop a roadmap (activities and timetable). 

We find the right specialist providers for specific challenges, if required – especially in the field of data management and data consolidation.

REPORTING

There are multiple reasons why it is important to consider the topic of sustainability: cost pressure and customer demands regarding quality protection, supply chains, and the conservation of resources, as well as new legal regulations like the EU CSR guideline (2014/95/EU) demand greater transparency from companies. As a result, more and more companies are publishing  socially and environmentally relevant information alongside their financial data. 

Furthermore: sustainability certificates that meet recognized standards are a huge competitive advantage, which is good for your marketing. Because of the multitude of national and international directives concerning corporate and CSR reporting, orientation is not always easy. 

 

Do you think about reporting on your CSR activities according to a nationally or internationally recognized standard? 

We produce your sustainability report.

We help you to find the appropriate reporting standard.

We carry out materiality analyses including workshops, interviews, and online surveys.

We support your sustainability reporting even if you are not aiming at an official label. 

 

Under any circumstances, sustainability strategies as well as CSR activities require a lot of explanation – within your company and outside. It is crucial to establish a credible dialogue with employers, clients, investors, suppliers, and supervisory boards. We take care about it.

By the way: Do you think the term “sustainability” is overused? So do we, but it still gets to the heart of the matter. Frequently you will find the terms Sustainability, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Corporate Responsibility (CR), or Corporate Citizenship side by side. We consider Sustainability and CSR to be synonyms for entrepreneurial responsibility in a broader sense: economically, environmentally, and socially.
